St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church



Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church (STACC) strives to share the riches of the Catholic faith by a vibrant sacramental life with a goal that all in their parish and university community will fulfill their call to know, love and serve the Lord.

The Challenge

Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church (STACC) experienced a drop in contributions during the pandemic, making their communications providers too expensive. They needed a provider that would help them unify all their communications under one platform—all while helping them reduce costs.

The Solution

Prior to Broadvoice, STACC used multiple communications providers, including C Spire and Comcast, that didn’t talk to each other. Having multiple providers made it challenging to learn the different platforms and their unique features, which often led to issues.

STACC switched to Broadvoice to streamline their communications and significantly cut down on costs, and they haven’t looked back since.

“We wanted to get everything into one platform, which led us to Broadvoice. The platform has been so much easier to use and we are all loving it.”

The Results

Now STACC has a unified communications solution that helps them streamline all their communications in one easy-to-use platform.

Plus, by moving to a cloud-based system, they significantly reduced their costs which allowed them to continue operating with much fewer contributions than usual.

“Broadvoice has everything we need, honestly probably more features that we need, but it’s much cheaper and much easier to use than our last system.”

The call parking feature has been especially beneficial for STACC and their small staff. It allows staff members to put a person on hold from one telephone and then continue that conversation from any other telephone in a different room.

“If I get a call in one room and I need to look up information in another room, I can use the call parking feature. It’s made my life so much easier.”

STACC now has more flexible and reliable service and they no longer need to worry about dropped calls. With our 4G failover, their connection is always protected so local internet and phone outages don’t impact their service.

“We’ve had no issues or dropped calls.”

Lastly, what really sealed the deal for STACC was our stellar customer service. Any time they have an issue or a question about a feature, they know they can turn to our 24/7 US-based customer service and they will get the help that they need.

We’ve had such a positive experience with Broadvoice and it’s really helped us streamline everything.”
